Galway-based children’s theatre company, Branar returns to Roscommon Arts Centre to present its adaptation of How to Catch a Star on Saturday, February 17, for two captivating performances.
Based on the beloved book by award-winning Irish author, Oliver Jeffers, the story tells of a boy who was always looking up. He dreams of becoming friends with a star and he sets out to catch it. This is the story of his adventure.

Filled with plenty of laugh out loud moments, How to Catch a Star is also full of the visual magic that Branar is well known for.
